Rodgers linked with Tottenham’s job

Tottenham chief, Daniel Levy, is reported to be considering making a move for Leicester City boss, Brendan Rodgers, as pressure mounts on Jose Mourinho.

Spurs’ latest disappointment saw them go down 2-1 at West Ham at the weekend, a result that saw them slip down to ninth in the Premier League, and means they have won just one of their last six games in the league, and sit nine points from the top four.

The north London club were tipped to challenge for the title earlier this season after a bright start to the campaign before injuries kicked in and form dipped.

Pressure is starting to mount of Mourinho, with Spurs now relying on glory in the Carabao Cup or Europa League.

And, according to reports, chairman Levy is contemplating an approach for long-term target Rodgers if Mourinho fails to turn things around.

Football Insider report that Rodgers has been admired by Levy since his days at Swansea when he turned the south Wales side into Premier League regulars.

Levy is said to have held talks to assess Rodgers’ interest in replacing Harry Redknapp back in 2012.

But Rodgers joined Liverpool instead as the Reds were first to make an approach as Kenny Dalglish was dismissed.

“I don’t know what you mean by crisis,” he said. “If crisis is frustration and sadness in the dressing room, I’d say so because nobody is happy and we all showed that in this game.

“When a team fights the way the team did until the last second, trying to get a different result, it’s never a group crisis, because groups are in crisis when you’re not together in the search for better results than you have.

“So I wouldn’t say crisis, I would say a bad, a really bad run of results. That is obvious. We’re losing too many matches.”
